Katie Findlay to Star in New Form Digital ‘Pulse’ EDM Musical Series for Verizon Go90

Actress Katie Findlay (“How to Get Away with Murder,” “The Killing”) will star in “Pulse,” an original short-form musical series from studio New Form Digital slated to debut on Verizon’s Go90 this fall.

The cast of the show — about a group of young American expats in Berlin’s electronic-dance music scene — includes Craig Stickland, Calum Worthy, Melissa O’Neil and Alexandre Landry, with YouTube star Meg DeAngelis and Harley Morenstein (“Epic Meal Time”) guest starring. Filming will take place in Montreal, Canada, from May through the end of June.

Pulse” is created by Kyle Jarrow, who’s been tapped to write the book for “The SpongeBob Musical.” Performer-composer Duncan Sheik (Deaf West’s musical “Spring Awakening”) wrote and arranged the score for the digital series and each episode will feature an original song performed by the cast. The series will be directed by Anna Mastro, who has directed AwesomenessTV series “Royal Crush” and “Guidance” and films including “Walter,” starring Milo Ventimiglia and William H. Macy.

The series tracks one year of the characters’ lives, told as an EDM musical. “Pulse” centers on Hannah Cooper (Findlay), an aspiring musician who travels to Berlin in search of a missing friend but finds herself drawn into the seductive club scene he was involved in — a crowd where “music is everything and sex and drugs are as vital as water.”

“Pulse” is produced by New Form Digital, whose backers include Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Discovery Communications. Each of the 12 episodes will run about 10 minutes.

“‘Pulse’ is a very special series that required just the right cast to bring it to life,” said Melissa Schneider, New Form Digital’s senior VP of development and production. “Katie is the perfect actor for the role of Cooper and she, along with the ensemble cast, will make Kyle and Duncan’s vision a reality.”

New Form Digital last fall sold six series to Verizon for Go90, a mobile, ad-supported video service aimed at a millennial crowd. Other New Form Digital productions include romantic comedy “Single By 30” for YouTube Red, and original series for CW’s Seed, Refinery29 and Fullscreen.
